Earlier, talking about the new parents, both Prince William and Kate Middleton, who are familiar with the role, shared their excitement for Prince Harry and Meghan. In an interview with Fox News, Prince William said, “I’m looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quieted down. I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting!”
Talking about how the season of Spring is such a good time for a baby, Kate said, “It’s really exciting for both of them. These next few weeks, it’s always a bit daunting first time around, so wish them all the best. It’s such a special time — with Louis and Charlotte just having had their birthdays. It’s such a great time of the year to have a baby. Spring’s in the air, so it’s really great. As William said, look forward to meeting him and finding out what his name’s going to be.”
